No Holds Barred: Rob Maysey of the Mixed Martial Arts Fighters Association (MMAFA) 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Rob Maysey, the founder of the Mixed Martial Arts Fighters Association (MMAFA). This organization seeks to establish an association of mixed martial artists and their trainers, similar to other such organizations which already exist in many professional sports.

    We spoke at length with Rob Maysey about the goals of the MMAFA, its progress so far, what impact it has already had on mixed martial arts, how fighters can become involved with MMAFA, how this organization has been received by those calling themselves members of the mixed martial arts media, and much more.

    No Holds Barred: For Scandal-Ridden Boxing, Tougher Regulation or Abolition? 

  • NO HOLDS BARRED on PodOmatic


  • On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman comments on the implications of the latest major scandal in boxing, involving former welterweight champion Antonio Margarito and his trainer, Javier Capetillo.

    Both Margarito and Capetillo had their licenses revoked for at least a year on Feb. 10 by the California State Athletic Commission after the commission found that Capetillo had placed pads in Margarito's hand wraps which reportedly contained a hard, plaster-like substance, before his Jan. 24 fight with Shane Mosley. These pads were discovered by Mosley's trainer, Naazim Richardson, during a prefight inspection, and then removed. Mosley, an underdog, then went on to dominate Margarito and scored a ninth-round TKO victory.

    In this commentary, we discuss what are really the only two alternatives for the sport of boxing: tougher regulation by the often incompetent and ineffective bodies which are supposed to control the sport, or abolition of the sport itself.

    SecondsOut Radio: Kelly Pavlik, Miguel Cotto, Bob Arum, Marco Antonio Rubio, Michael Jennings 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman


  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman previews the February 21 pay-per-view headlined by middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik (34-1, 30 KOs) facing Marco Antonio Rubio (43-4-1, 37 KOs), and former welterweight champion Miguel Cotto (32-1, 26 KOs) taking on Michael Jennings (34-1, 16 KOs). While both on the same pay-per-view telecast, the Pavlik-Rubio fight will headline a live card at the Chevrolet Centre in Youngstown, Ohio, and the Cotto-Jennings fight will headline a live card at Madison Square Garden in New York.

    All four of these fighters were at a recent news conference at Madison Square Garden, and we hear what they had to say. We also spoke with promoter Bob Arum about why this show is on pay-per-view. And we also address some recent developments regarding the losing battle over Internet piracy being carried out by some content providers, and why they would be better off accommodating those viewers and fight fans in the spirit of "WIW, WIW, WIW", that is, allowing them to watch "what I want, when I want, where I want".

    It is free to listen to or download SecondsOut Radio, but you must register to gain access to it. Just click here, and listen, learn, and enjoy.
